Here's the place to share and explore your latest and greatest favorite recipe.
My- how time flies!!!
Seems like we were just talking about having a weekly cooking thread on Free Republic just a few months ago....and here it is - 1 year....and about 800 recipes later :>)
That seems like a lot of eggs and no molasses? I’d try adding 2 T of molasses and reducing the eggs to 2 and maybe add a tiny amount of ground cloves. 1/8 tsp or a little less? It can be overpowering but it does add something.
Thanks for the ideas. The cake portion seems fine, texture and moistness. It just dont quite taste like some that I have had at different events at Christmas. My best guess was the spices, too little or not the rights ones. I took some to church one year and it seemed well recieved, then the next week, one of the senior ladies brought some that was so good that it made me want to hide from sight. I complimented her on the wonderful flavor of hers, but she smiled and never offered up anything. Sometimes these ladies are pretty tight-lipped about their dishes. I was not taught to cook as a youth, and did not inherit but just a few recipes that I found after the death of my mom. Learning to cook from books or internet is just not quite the same. At least this thread helps a lot. A chance to get some family favotites and time tested ones.
ok must not have been reading like I should, what FR cookbook? I apologize for my ignorance.
Or better yet, get on the ping list, if you are not already.
well duh!! Man it’s been a stupid week for me. other issues, not just here. So this is monday and I get to start over tomorrow right?
If it was not for that other life, we could devote more time to FR. :)
